Do not be late, straight into the topic. Rolex and Omega is a pair of “enemies”, both sides of the famous watch each are tit for tat. Rolex has a water ghost, Omega hippocampus; Rolex has Daytona, Omega has super; Rolex DD, Omega has a constellation. Rolex and Omega “incompatible” until one day, Rolex and Omega also “hit the face” of the. “Hit the face” is the Rolex and Omega’s enamel table, Rolex watch dial and Omega watch dial exactly the same. Yes, except for the “crown” and “resistance” on the disk, the other is exactly the same.
This is the case, in the history, because Rolex and Omega have to the same enamel artist ordered the dial, so there Rolex and Omega watch disk “hit face” situation. The enamel artist painted the same pattern for Omega and Rolex. Coincidentally, the same pattern of Rolex enamel and Omega enamel tables have been taken to the auction auction. The same pattern, different brands, the results are different.
The enamel table with the same pattern is the Rolex 8382 and the Omega 2767-6 SC. Both watches are pictured by enamel artist Nelly Richard (sold by Stern). Two watch dial painted with cloisonne enamel sea god and hippocampus pattern. Patterns taken from Greek mythology. The pattern of the sea god is the Greek mythology Neptune, he holds the Trident, control two hippocampus, he is the protection of the sea sailors, protect the sailors from sea storm attacks and bless them catch enough fish, rewarding. Very interesting is that Nelly Richard for Rolex, Omega draw the same cloisonne enamel dial, the price charged is not the same. It is understood that Omega’s Poseidon enamel dial Nelly Richard received 86 Swiss francs (the final Stern company to 155 Swiss francs sold to the price of Omega), Omega this piece of cloak enamel plate is the most expensive, because the Rolex dial to charge A total of 68 Swiss francs, painted Patek Philippe dials received 60 Swiss francs. Nelly Richard worked for Stern in the 1940s to the 1950s, and unfortunately, the days of jealousy, died at a young age.
The two watches were auctioned at different auctions. Rolex in Fu Yi Si shoot, Omega in Antiqu. Gu Lun shot. Rolex’s valuation of 300,000 to 600,000 Swiss francs, and ultimately to 394,000 Swiss francs to shoot, about 2.76 million yuan; Omega’s valuation of 25,000 to 45,000 Swiss francs, and ultimately to 90,3750 Swiss francs Out, about 68 million yuan.
The price of both watches is relatively high, but Rolex is clearly higher, I think on the one hand is Rolex in the enamel table production less than Omega, another important reason is that this is only produced in 1953 Rolex even There are “unusual” 37mm caliber. While the same pattern produced in 1952 in the Omega, the size was then mainstream 34 mm. 36 mm is a watershed, 36 mm and 36 male watch, it is now able to wear a hand, 36 below the performance of some wear a hand (see personal preferences). Of course, the different results of the Omega and Rolex also reflect the different degree of acceptance of Rolex and Omega.
